AIX Encryption using EFS
Posted on 2013-06-20
I was testing EFS on AIX 7.1. it was working when I decided to start over.
I deleted the filesystem and recreated the filesystem with the same name.
Now I get the following when entering root's EFS password:
efskeymgr -o ksh
root's EFS password:
Encryption framework returned an error: libefs bad parameter
I can change the password but still get the same error message.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
Also, once EFS is enabled with efsenable -a can it be disabled?
